Saw that. Starting 4 freshmen and she's not one of them.A quick NEO team update.
Defending Div II title holder, NDCL, has taken a Padua like plunge this year. So far they are 1-4 playing a below average schedule. They have yet to run through the tough part of the schedule too which includes Gilmour, Lake Catholic, & Magnificat. Also hearing crazy Joe moved the Jerevicius family to Nebraska to follow Caroline and get younger Ava some more exposure. So far its not looking too good as Nebraska is loaded with young pins and she has yet to see the court.
That Nebraska team is loaded with young talent. Harper Murray is a freshmen playing 6 rotations. It is a tough lineup to crack for any player. Would not surprise me to see a couple of Nebraska players in the transfer portal after this season.Saw that. Starting 4 freshmen and she's not one of them.
Daughter played at Caroline's club, AVC, and we still talk to the coaches. They were not sure why she picked Nebraska over Penn State where she would have been the top Freshmen coming in but then again Joe pointed her in directions away from his alma maters. He played football for Lake Catholic yet it was never considered for his girls, then played football for Penn State and again was not in the picture for Caroline. Both are top volleyball programs at their levels, kind of crazy if you think about it.That Nebraska team is loaded with young talent. Harper Murray is a freshmen playing 6 rotations.

From what I have been hearing - SUA is the outright favorite for this tough league and the remaining 4 spots are all up for grabs as everyone has played at least 1-2 really good teams. Outside of these few games, the strength of schedule has been less than desirable to determine how these teams will perform in the leagueAs the calendar moves to September, league competition starts, and we can now start to get an idea of what the GCL will look like.
SUA seems to be the slight favorite. They are undefeated against a good non-conference schedule. Seton is also undefeated, but their schedule has not been as strong.

Magnificat & St. Joseph Academy are Div I. Gilmour & Holy Name are Div II. Lake Catholic is Div III.Which of those in NEO are in D1? Gilmour is 2 correct?
Yeah, Lake Catholic may be the best team in NEO but not sure about the state. We will see when the state finals come up but with Padua & NDCL down their conference comp level took a serious dive, Gilmour is the only conference team who will push them the balance of the year,That is crazy talk. Seton and SUA are both loaded.
